It’s been a minute.
I’ve missed this space.
I didn’t totally ghost my alcove. I stopped by on some days, started writing, left a couple of drafts, later deleted them all. I toyed with deleting it all..but well, I’m here so that didn’t happen.
While having a chat with myself I juggled a couple of excuses on why I stayed away….some were legit but I think the genesis was when I started overthinking certain things.
For a long time, only a few people in my day to day life knew I had this space. Then following some spontaneous shares that number increased….and for some weird reason I was not at ease writing here anymore. Yeah this space is not anonymous and it isn’t like I serve any juicy drip but still, I became a lil bit more self conscious. That phase is receeding though.
And oh, I found the new editor pattern of the WordPress app annoying…the whole paragraph block thingy? Argh!
Last year was filled with so many emotions. Grief – lost a sibling. Love – said I Do! to my amazing man. Doubts – flunked an exam. Insecurity – lost income at some point. Worry – simply leaving the house was laced with a number of what if’s. But I’m still standing here and thankful.
Anyway…. I’m glad to be here. And plan to be around more often.
Cheers to a new year!
